Box clever

A new mobile kitchen with hidden depths.

Despite its constant presence at avant-garde Parisian design fairs, the 186-year-old French copper kitchenware brand Mauviel 1830 has always appeared rooted in the past.


But Valérie Le Guern-Gilbert, a seventh generation of the Mauviel family, is now leading the brand into a new era, instigating collaborations with the Le studio REV. Their first collaboration to see the light of day is the Transformer Box kitchen, launched this autumn and 'designed to amplify the experience of Mauviel 1830 products though the extension of cooking culture and gestures', according to Le studio REV co-founder Cristiano Benzoni.


The mobile kitchen transforms from a copper box ('like a Kubrick monolith') to a gallery fully kitted out with Mauviel 1830 kitchenware, with integrated preparation surfaces in oak and steel and a hob by Alpes Inox.
